I completely agree..

This is just my opinion of course. When we voted on the top shows they made it out to sound like this game would be about reliving those classic shows. I assumed the point of designing a bear would be so that we could all stand near each other and interact with one another at these shows or something. They said there was going to be a shakedown street with interactive areas and everything. there is no multiplayer interaction at all.

The "bonus video" that others mentioned above is a music never stopped from a handheld camera (i think). I mean if the dead are apart of this couldnt they put some pro shot footage?

Like i said on the game's facebook page. I can't believe they had memberships available and some people probably bought them. they were like $25, $50, $75, $100. I'm sure none of them expected a game this poorly done. I'm not the type of person who judges them too much. That was not a good move. it feels like they totally took advantage of people.

Exactly. The money they are asking is going to kill any chance it may have had. Its so far off the mark its crazy. This is going to be one huge flop. Warner is obviously backing this one, and they are gonna take a bath. I wish it was better. I would play it. I think trying to turn the so-called "deadhead" experience into a PG rated online game is an impossible task.

From my experience, being on tour was about the hustle. This for that, tickets and campgrounds and hotel rooms. I have no idea how to turn that into a game without being honest about it.
